BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The National Federation of Independent Business, which lobbies on behalf of small businesses, has named a new state director in Louisiana.

The organization announced Wednesday that Dawn Starns, who has been a Baton Rouge lobbyist, was chosen for the Louisiana position.

Starns was most recently the executive director of the Capital Region Legislative Delegation, an organization of Baton Rouge-area state lawmakers. She also managed a legislative charity fund that raises money for nonprofit organizations.

NFIB says it is the largest small business organization in Louisiana, with 4,300 dues-paying members.
